Listing Boot Volumes

You can list all boot volumes in a specific compartment, or detailed information on a single boot volume.

Required IAM Service Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be granted security access in a policy  by an administrator. This access is required whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, verify with your administrator what type of access you have and which compartment  to work in.

For administrators: The policy in Let users launch compute instances includes the ability to list volumes. The policy in Let volume admins manage block volumes, backups, and volume groups lets the specified group do everything with block volumes and backups, but not launch instances.

If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies. For reference material about writing policies for instances, cloud networks, or other Core Services API resources, see Details for the Core Services.

Using the Console

  1. Open the navigation menu and click Storage. Under Block Storage, click Block Volumes. In the Block Storage menu on the sidebar, click Boot Volumes.
  2. Choose your Compartment.

A detailed list of volumes in the current compartment is displayed. To see detailed information for a specific volume, click the boot volume name.

The instance associated with the boot volume is listed in the Attached Instance field. If the value for this field displays the message None in this Compartment, the boot volume has been detached from the associated instance, or the instance has been terminated while the boot volume was preserved.

To view the volumes in a different compartment, change the compartment in the Compartment drop-down menu.
